Distribution Cover Up: How to Achieve Insulation and Isolation

Distribution Cover Up: How to Achieve Insulation and Isolation discusses cover up requirements for distribution systems and substations in a practical and easy to understand and apply method. Covering voltages up to 44 kV, this five session course led by a utility industry expert includes case studies; fundamentals and principles of cover up; specific requirements for overhead, underground, and substation applications; and the impact of culture on cover up practices in the field.


The primary objective of Distribution Cover Up is for participants to understand how cover up should be utilized to achieve insulation and isolation for worker and system protection on voltages up to 44 kV. In order to achieve this objective, participants must understand:

  • The historical perspective of how cover up has evolved over time
  • Fundamentals of cover up including minimum approach distances (MAD), selection, inspection, installation, and removal
  • Specific cover up requirements for overhead distribution, underground distribution, substations
  • What organizations must do in positively encourage effective cover up practices


Series of 5 sessions: May 19, May 21, May 26, May 28, June 2

All sessions are 1-hr long, from 11:00am -12:00pm ET.
